Did this watercolor on watercolor paper last night.
always loved the look of the spinnakers( the big balloon sails out in front) used when you are going downwind.that means the wind is behind you and is pushing you.
Had fun with this. Didn't want to get to technical so I left most of the rigging out.

Hi Mary Ann,
The spinnaker is where most yachts have fun with colour and make a bold statement ( also where most sponsors put there logos) and your work shows this very well.

Thank you all for your comments. You know I have been playing with the computer enhancer and this painting would reallylook even better if I used the colors the computer has shown me, maybe I will try it again using them.
